Spring Riot Workshop

Join florist Siri Thorson in exploring the intersection of Dutch Master opulence and contemporary floral design. Working with local and organically grown spring blooms, students will create a modern centerpiece inspired by the still life painters of the 17th and 18th century.

Basic principles of foam-free floral design using a flower frog will be covered, as well as techniques for successfully photographing your floral masterpieces using natural light.

Professional photographer Issha Marie will lead students in styling and capturing their very own nature mort portrait using their completed arrangement and a variety of unique natural ephemera and objets d’art.

Siri will also share her favorite sources for growing beautiful spring bulbs in your own garden.
